The Ultimate Road Trip Playlist

Heading out on a family vacation? Leaving town on a romantic getaway? Travelling for work? 
ultimate road trip playlist

No matter the reason for your upcoming road trip you are likely going to want to boost your playlist before heading out on the open road. I know what you’re thinking…you can listen to the radio… this is so true, but let me assure you some of the most scenic drives in our country are not radio/satellite radio friendly. To avoid having spotty service it’s always great to have the ultimate road trip playlist with you to ensure the trip is serenaded by classic, new and a few random hits.
We ran into a stretch of spotty service during our family road trip to the Gaspé coast of Quebec and again during our road trip from Calgary to Vancouver. Luckily we learned from the first experience and were well prepared for the second! 

Our playlist suits us and allowed us to have a variety of music depending on the mood we were feeling through the drive. Although, I should say that Little Dude’s favorite song for the entire trip was “Castle on the Hill” by Ed Sheeran so we listened to that song on repeat for about an hour (more than once!). Thankfully, he was about 22 months old at the time and slept well in the car – during his extended sleeping periods we of course listened to the rest of the playlist.

  1. Great is a must have on any road trip!

    1. I agree! Do you have a favorite Road Trip song?

  2. Plan your excursion. To begin with, you have to figure out where you will go and afterward design your outing. Arranging doesn't need to take a long a period, however you do need to know the course you will drive and purposes of enthusiasm en route that you will need to stop and investigate.used rvs in missouri
